Commercial Fisherman, Rick Daugherty, poses with a 533 lb halibut
Regarded as the world’s premium whitefish, Alaskan halibut is the largest flatfish, with some fish reaching over 300 pounds.
Halibut’s firm, flaky texture and sweet, delicate flavor has made it a versatile favorite, suitable for any application. Nutritionally, it is high in protein and low in fat making it a lean option for conscientious consumers. Alaska halibut is the whitefish of choice for many foodservice and retail operations.
Long-liners harvest halibut from early March to mid-November. Halibut are bled, cleaned and iced shortly after catch. Our processing centers are located near key fishing grounds so fish are processed within a short time of landing to preserve peak freshness and flavor.
To ensure we are providing sustainably-caught halibut to our customers, we offer product traceability from the initial harvest area all the way to our customer’s door. Our fish is certified sustainable by Alaska’s Responsible Fisheries Management and by the Marine Stewardship Council.
